your roadmap to go from confused to confident

Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or somewhere in between AND you've had bariatric surgery

You need support and education to be able to stay plant-based

But here's the problem...

  • You feel overwhelmed ...

  • You don't have time to spend learning all this stuff through Google searches and Facebook groups ...

  • ​You need individualized support and education made just for people like you ...

I hear you!

I'm Ashley Krautkramer, RD, CSOWM, CD, CDCES, founder of Vegan Bariatric Dietitian. I have been a bariatric dietitian for nearly 10 years and in that time learned all the ins and outs of supporting the nutrition of those having bariatric surgery.

I've also been vegan myself since 2006 and vegetarian for four or so years before that. I started my business, Vegan Bariatric Dietitian, to combine my two passions: bariatric surgery nutrition and plant-based nutrition.

When you're eating plant-based after bariatric surgery, it can feel lonely and overwhelming. And you don't want to waste your time looking at random advice on the internet... you want to get the answers to your questions and the support you need so you can get back to your life!

I get it! You're tired of the generic information you get from your bariatric surgery program and you want advice tailored to you: someone eating plant-based after bariatric surgery.

In my group program I've seen amazing transformations of lovely people who came into my program worrying about whether or not they're 'doing it right' with their nutrition after bariatric surgery.

We work together to figure out what is going well with their diet and what may need tweaking.

I'm so happy to offer the ONLY program for people eating plant-based after bariatric surgery. I can tell that it's been a long time coming for this amazing community to get the support it needs!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can’t I just find all this information on the internet by myself?

You probably can find a lot of information on the internet. But, it can be tough to figure out if it is the right information for you without support. In the program, you will get the support and guidance from a plant-based bariatric expert, Ashley.

  • What kind of support will I get?

In the program, you will have access to weekly group calls for Q&A and support, along with email and a private Voxer group for daily, personalized support.

  • Is this program for me if I just had surgery?

Yes, this program is for you if you just had surgery. Some information may come before you reach that diet stage, but you will have the information to reference once you get to that stage.

  • Is this program for me if I had surgery many years ago?

Yes, this program is for you if you had surgery many years ago. A small amount of the information is geared toward earlier diet stages, but most is relevant for all times after surgery.

  • Can I join this program if I’m not eating fully plant-based?

Absolutely. I welcome everyone that is vegan, vegetarian, somewhere in between, or aspiring to be. If you want to learn about and be supported in being plant-based after bariatric surgery, this is the place for you.

  • Is this program a replacement for the care I receive at my bariatric surgery program?

No, this program does not replace your bariatric program. It is meant as an educational and support compliment to your bariatric program.

  • Can you guarantee that I will lose weight by joining this program?

No, I cannot guarantee that you will lose weight. Weight loss is complex, multifactorial, and can have many causes beyond what you eat. I can guarantee that you will feel supported, listened to, and learn the skills you need to be a confident plant-based eater after bariatric surgery.
